strikes me even more than the lack of bipartisanship and the aggressionive support for big government was that there's just no sense of that... that these things are part of our reality. >> brown: rev. hamilton, what did you hear? you had an interesting look from the pulpit today >> sure. well, first of all i think when the president is giving an inaugural address like this,ese trying to cast a lofty vision for the future rather than trying to get into the details of policy. so for me i heard him speaking about equality. i heard him speaking about the vision of children being able to have a future with hope. and i wasn't expecting him to give a detailed analysis of the economy today and what needs to be changed. i'm not suggesting that's not important but i was hearing him speak about lofty ideas of equality and freedom >> brown: yet he did point to some specific things as we heard in gwen's set-up >> that is true when it came to global warming or addressing the global climate change, i think we have to be willing to address these things. >> brown: trey grayson, what did you hear? >>

of mass destruction. we were told by every level of government here there were iraqi weapons of mass destruction that justified a war, the invasion of the united states. we are still searching for those weapons. they didn't exist. thousands of americans lost their lives. we could have a hearing on that if you'd like. >> ifill: while the benghazi attack was the main focus, secretary clinton also turned her attention to upheaval elsewhere in north africa. >> benghazi did not happen in a vacuum. the arab revolutions have scrambled power dynamics and shattered security forces across the region. instability in mali has created an expanding safe haven for terrorists who look to extend their influence and plot further attacks of the kind we saw just last week in algeria. >> ifill: in mali, elements of al qaeda in the islamic maghreb, known as a.q.i.m., have seized a large swath of territory, prompting france to intervene militarily with air power and ground troops. the u.s. military is providing transport flights to aid the french, and clinton said other assistance is under consideration. >
single agency of state government to cut specific regulations and red tape. we thought fracking was such a big deal. we have a huge amount of natural gas. horizontal drilling and fracking, natural gas has great potential benefits. much cleaner than coal. it is $1.75 per gallon equivalent to less-expensive. it keeps jobs here and does not send billions of dollars to a dictatorship. there is fear about what happens and we sat down with halliburton and the oil and gas services companies. we understand they have trade secrets. we showed what the ingredients are and it took a six months but we got the environmental defense fund to claim victory and have halliburton claim victory. here is a transparency, set of regulations that will protect the public and settle down all the hysteria and kirk -- furor about fracking. i did it when i was a kid diyala this. how do we get past that fear and uncertainty and create some sort of predictability to business needs? that became a symbol for our issues. to find the appropriate compromise so we can get on to the next problem. >> would you like to
of resistance. but we deal with that through enlightened government policies, feedback, and changing them when we find they do not work. and encouraging the private sector where the ideas come up. i do not think -- steve jobs working in his career came up with stuff. i did not know that steve jobs was working in that group on the computer. we want to have space for that. we need space for innovation, it is a constant challenge. the power of the conventional is so overwhelming and the convergence is so powerful that to try to innovate is exhausting in government. let me tell you. in spite of that, i am ready for several more years of innovation. i hope you are. i hope california is. [laughter] [applause] >> for this next question, let's pretend that president obama is sitting in this chair. but pretend this is a private room -- let's pretend this is a private room. we need everyone out there to be quiet. if you were here along with the president, what are the two things you would tell him you need to make your state more competitive or all states more competitive? >> i think and i am an unabash
employees will face furloughs and reduced paychecks by april. the government of syria called today for thousands of refugees to come home, including those opposed to the regime. nearly 600,000 syrians have fled the civil war and gone to neighboring countries. there's been a new surge this week. we have a report narrated by alex thomson of independent television news. >> the children say they double-checked their figures. they counted around 10,000 children in the overcrowded camps in jordan in just the past 24 hours, with the parents or gardens they recognized around 20,000 people in all. with the winter cold and conditions like this, in the camps, king abdullah of jordan took the might of these people to the top today, to the world economic summit in davous. >> jordan is hosting almost 300,000. the weakest ref gos are struggling now just to survive this year's harsh winter. more international support is desperately needed. and it's only going to get worse. >> back there syria it is indeed getting worse. these people filmed getting out and leaving in the past 24 hours. it's partly
. and lastly, government programs. president obama took a shot at republicans when he said this about entitlements. >> the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not zap our initiative. they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> i'll take that poll. the public's predominantly in favor here. when we polled on medicare, 54% said it only needed minor modifications if anything. joining us david corn and michael scherer. gentlemen, thank you. i didn't know this until you put it all together. i have a sense that on the right if you're a moderate positions like these polls say, you're considered a liberal. if you're in the middle, the right sees you as the left. it's true. what do you think? >> well, i think the right is screaming that this is a liberal speech which should come as no surprise. barack obama has always been a progressive democrat. a pragmatist as a government manager, but progressive in his values. >> i know you're on the progressive si
're the people matching at selma. you're having your civil rights denied. >> the government doesn't have a role in contraception. government does have a role in protecting your civil rights. especially today, on martin luther king day. >> i think martin luther king would agree with me if he were alive today that if african americans had been given the right to keep and bear arms from day one of the country's founding, perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history. >> two misquote leaders and figures that fought for freedom and inequality is dishonest. to misuse them is disgraceful. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> hillary kicks butt. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. secretary of state hillary clinton was at her best today appearing between both senate and house committees on foreign affairs. she showed acuity, humility, and charm. she showed candor and humility in place of the state department handling of the horror. she admitted to -- in response to hostile questio
orders. putting pressure on our state governments because there are areas, for example, fracking that are unregulated. deforestation. i think when we concentrate on just the congress national level we get frustrated and we get to the point where we say nothing is going to be done. if we look at cobbling together the different approaches, i think we can move forward. >> this idea that was brought up about the tragedies that lead us to say we must do something then the idea of using executive orders and cobbling things together. i wonder, part of what gave me a gut reaction to the oh now that hurricane sandy happened is whoa, these injustices have been so real for communities without resources, without power and often communities of color for so long. it feels a little bit like these lives and bodies matter and these other ones don't. >> exactly. what we see is that we see the climate impacts right now. we know that in alaska native americans are being relocated away from receding shorelines. we have seen what's happened in terms of civil disruption in new orleans. now we have sand
government does not recognize your marriage and your partner cannot get social security benefits. if you are a federal employee, your spouse will not get your pension benefits, date and will not get health insurance, your children may not get health insurance. there are real life harm's every day from the defense of marriage act. we maintain that the defense of marriage act is unconstitutional. i certainly hope that the supreme court will find it so. line.miami, democrats' caller: good morning. my question to you is had you seen a lot of transgendered married with heterosexuals? what is the point of it, then? guest: well, i think transgendered people have always gotten married. some transgendered people are straight, some transgendered people are gay. the ones who are straight are allowed to marry in some places, the ones who are gay are only allowed to marry in states i mentioned already. again, i am not sure by how anyone else's marriage or life is impacted in any bad way if people are allowed to make commitments to the person they glove and strengthen their family -- they love and str
response from the state department. the libyan government. so i saw firsthand what ambassador pickering and former chairman mullen called "timely and exceptional coordination." no delays in decision-making no denials of support from washington or from our military and i want to echo the review board's praise for the valor and courage of our people on the ground especially the security professionals in benghazi and tripoli. the board said the response saved american lives in real time and it did. the very next morning, i told the american people that heavily-armed militants assaulted our compound. and i vowed to bring them to justice. and i stood with president obama in the rose garden as he spoke of an act of terror. it's also important to recall that in that same period, we were seeing violent attacks on our embassies in cairo tunis khartoum as well as large protests outside many other posts where thousands of our diplomats served. >> she's doing good! >> i ordered a review around the world with particular scrutiny for high-threat posts. i asked the department of defense to join intera
what i am concerned about. it was not saying there is absolutely no role for government. these people have to pull themselves up by the bootstraps. i think we can do more and more of telling those stories with a places like national review. we have to highlight the things that work. when people see it, it makes a huge difference as opposed to sterile principle or policy that we may know sounds good, but we want to feel good about it. >> there are two was to message to people, whether they are consumers, voters, your neighbors. shock the conscience is pretty obvious. we always have to have our hair and hands on fire when we talk about something. does not always have to be an anti obama statement. i actually prefer to ignore him more than anything. one day i will wake up and he will not be president. i can spend time with people who are useful to advancing the ideas and the belief systems that we have in free market and religious liberties and limited government and the family etc.. what about the warm the heart? that is really important. people say, that will not move of
-50s toward the bay bridge. ,, ,,,,,,,, this week - an upeat govern brown in sacramento. his state of the state addr- optimistic....with the s et in the black fo >>> this week, we saw an upbeat governor brown in sacramento. the state-of-the-state address is optimistic with the state budget in the black the first time in more than a decade. >> california's back, its budget is balanced and we're on the move. i think i k. we're going to get over the mountain. have no doubt about it. >> and his forecast for california, the good times are around the corner. >> and he said they're more than around the corner but the straightaway and we have turned and asked, informed the mayor and state ash semibly speaker brown and joe garafoli, how much of this is real and is about jerry brown himself? what was their read on? and who was the governor tacking to? >> i think he was talking to the people in washington and in particular tex, the people in iowa. >> wait a minute, are you saying this is a kickoff for the presidential bid? >> i think he was demonstrating clearly in 2013, the measure -- their
to discuss it they did reimburse the district of columbia government some $44 million for the last inauguration in 2009. that probably just scratches the surface of the cost the taxpayers are putting. if you look over the parade route the police presence is just unbelievable. there are probably police officers every 10 feet. i did some quick calculations, it is 1.6 miles from the capitol to the white house and with police interspersed that often on the parade route alone there are over 1700 police officers. that of course does not include the plainclothes guys filtering in and out of the crowd, the 40 or so police agencies including capitol police, secret service, national park police and police from surrounding jurisdictions who have come here to help out. we're told that the parade route now is closed off to all people because the parade route is filled up. however there are ticketed areas where there is still lots of room. i think a hunch maybe a third or half as many people are expected for inauguration as last one is probably right about right on. shep? shepard: thank you, sir
in the bay area when the assassinations happened, and wanted to be part of a government that was going to be much more open. in fact, i had to sue the government in order to make it more open. and those years where struggle and just representing people who wanted to make the city much more equality bent was where i felt. and i feel today that if mayor moscone and harvey milk were here, they'd be pretty proud of what we've been able to accomplish in those years. seeing how mayor brown became mayor and my lucky charm of being now the first asian mayor of the city, understanding -- thank you. (applause) >> understanding now that we have the first african-american as president of the united states has now been reelected.

. they gave to us a republic, a government of and by and for the people, entrusting each generation to keep safe our founding creed. for more of the 200 years we have had. we have learned that no union founded on the principles of liberty and equality could survive half buried. we made ourselves a new and we vowed to move forward together. together we determined that a modern economy requires railroads and highways to see travel and commerce. schools and colleges to train our workers. together we discovered that a free market only works with your competition and fair play. together we resolve that a great nation must care for it the vulnerable and protect its people from life's worst hazards and misfortunes. to it all, we have never relinquished our skepticism of central authority. nor have we succumb to the fictions that ills can be cured through government alone. our celebration of a nation, and enterprise, our insistence on hard work and personal responsibility. these are constant in our character. we have always understood that when times change, so we do too. fidelity to our founding p

that will not be squandered. >> governing never ends. we have promises to keep. the most important is the one we made to the people if proposition 30 passed we would guard the money jealously temporarily made available. this means living in our means and not spending what we don't have. >> other big topics include progress on the high-speed rail progress, reducing carbon emissions and the need for higher education to reduce costs. >> tuition increases are not the answer. i will not let the students of california become the default financiers of our colleges and universities. [ applause ] >> republicans say it sounded good, if not familiar. they will believe it when they see it. >> he talk about a rainy day fund and fiscal conservative, fewer bills, smaller government, tuition trees, he talked about reform, all ideas we have put out there. the question is: will the reality of seven years match the rhetoric of today? >> governor brown touched on health care. he called for a special session to address issues that need to be decided quickly so california can get president obama's affordable care act star
